Many businesses in Louisville are members of LIBA, the Louisville Independent Business Association. They are the ones that have the "Buy Local First" signs all over town. Early in November, they will kick off their Annual Holiday Passport Contest. If you shop at 10 of these local stores during the holiday season, you can get a chance to win a $1,000 gift card, and you will also get their directory of the over 230 members.
